Tibetan self-Immolation protest filmed in Kardze

A Tibetan committed self immolation Saturday morning in Kardze (Ganzi) Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, according to exiled Tibetans familiar with the region and a video circulating on social media.

The brief video shows a man in police uniform spraying a fire extinguisher on a smoky body lying on the ground while other policemen are running towards the scene and blocking shouting onlookers from approaching the body.
Tibetan sources said the incident took place at about 7.00 a.m local time at the main square in Kardze town, where large crowds are known to gather. Chinese police swiftly took the self-immolator away, the sources told RFA's Tibetan Service.
Saturday's protest brings to 148 the number of self-immolations by Tibetans living in China since the wave of fiery protests began in 2009.The previous protest was on March 18, also in Kardze, where24-year-old Tibetan farmer named Pema Gyaltsen set himself on fire. His fate remains unclear.
Most protests feature demands for Tibetan freedom and the return of the Dalai Lama from India, where he has lived since escaping Tibet during a failed national uprising in 1959.

DHARAMSHALA: Yeshi Khando, a 47-year-old Tibetan nun in Kardze, set herself on fire on 8 April in a protest against the Chinese government, media reports say.

Yeshi Khando is a nun from Chogri Ngangang nunnery in Kardze town, Kardze Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture (incorporated into China’s Sichuan Province). She burned herself near a local police station in Kardze at around 09:00 am in the morning.
During her self-immolation protest, she raised slogans calling for the return of His Holiness the Dalai Lama to Tibet and freedom for Tibetans. She also shouted prayers for the long life of His Holiness the Dalai Lama and called for unity amongst the Tibetan people.
Chinese security forces arrived shortly after the incident and seized her body. It is currently not clear whether she is alive or dead. However, it is reported that eye witnesses and local people believe she may have expired after her fiery demonstration.
“Chinese authorities have summoned Yeshi Dolma’s family to the police station on 9 April to inform them that she has died. However, they refused to hand over her body to the family members. So, it’s quite difficult to ascertain whether she is dead or alive,” a reliable source informed.
